‘Private Benjamin’ actressEileen Brennan dies
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eileen Brennan, who went from musi-cal comedy on Broadway to wringing laughs out of memorablecharacters in such films as “Private Benjamin” and “Clue,” has died.She was 80.Brennan’s managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato, said shedied Sunday at home in Burbank after a battle with bladder cancer.“Our family is so grateful for the outpouring of love and respectfor Eileen,” her family said in a statement. “She was funny and caringand truly one of a kind. Her strength and love will never be forgotten.”Brennan got her first big role on the New York stage in “LittleMary Sunshine,” a musical comedy that won her the 1960 Obieaward for best actress. Along with her “excellent singing voice,”her performance was “radiant and comic,” said a New York Timesreview.But it was a series of sharp-tongued roles that won her fans ontelevision and in movies, including gruff Army Capt. Doreen Lewisin 1980’s “Private Benjamin,” aloof Mrs. Peacock in 1985’s “Clue”and mean orphanage superintendent Miss Bannister in 1988’s “TheNew Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.”“I love meanies, and this goes back to Capt. Lewis in ‘PrivateBenjamin,’” Brennan said a 1988 interview with The AssociatedPress. “You know why? Because they have no sense of humor.People who are mean or unkind or rigid — think about it — cannotlaugh at themselves. If we can’t laugh at ourselves and the humancondition, we’re going to be mean.”“Private Benjamin” brought her a supporting actress nomina-tion for an Oscar. She also won an Emmy for repeating her “PrivateBenjamin” role in the television version and was nominated six othertimes for guest roles on such shows as “Newhart,” ”thirtysomething,””Taxi” and “Will & Grace.”“Our world has lost a rare human,” said “Private Benjamin” starGoldie Hawn in a statement. “Eileen was a brilliant comedian, apowerful dramatic actress and had the voice of an angel. I will missmy old friend.”
Former Sen. Harry ByrdJr. of Virginia dies at 98
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) —Harry F. Byrd Jr., a 20th centurychampion of racial segregationand fiscal restraint who followedhis father into the U.S. Senatebut left his father’s DemocraticParty, died Tuesday. He was 98.Byrd, whose genteel demean-or masked thundering politi-cal clout, was the archetypalSouthern senator during his 17years in Washington. His 1983retirement amounted to an epi-logue for the “Byrd Machine”which once dominated Virginiapolitics from courthouses to thestatehouse.His death was first reportedby The Winchester Star, wherehis son, Tom Byrd, is presidentand publisher. There was noword on the cause of death.When failing health forced hisfather, Harry F. Byrd Sr., to vacatehis Senate seat in 1965, the name-sake son easily won a specialelection the next year to serveout his term. Then he left thestill-dominant Democratic orga-nization, marking only the secondtime an independent candidatehad won a U.S. Senate seat. Hewon re-election in 1970 and1976, winning more votes thanhis Democratic and Republicanopponents combined.“It’s a hard way to run, butif you can win that way it’s thebest way to win,” Byrd later said.“You’re totally free of obliga-tions to anybody. … You don’thave to follow a party line.”From the 1920s through the1960s, almost all Virginia publicpolicy carried the Byrd impri-matur, from its debt-averse “pay-as-you-go” approach to govern-ment finance to defiance of the1954 U.S. Supreme Court deci-sion that struck down raciallysegregated public schools. In1956, Byrd denounced the rulingas an “unwarranted usurpationof power” by the high court.He said he “personally hated”to see schools close, but defend-ed Virginia’s “massive resis-tance” to federal desegregationorders, claiming it helped thestate avert racial violence.“It is one thing to sit here in1982 and say what was donein 1954 was a mistake,” hesaid in a 1982 Washington Postinterview. “It may or may nothave been, because you have tolook at it in the context of thetimes. When you have to makea very dramatic change, some-times, most times, that needs tobe done maybe over a period of time and not abruptly.”Byrd, like his father,preached fiscal discipline andclaimed Congress could bal-ance the budget if it would justhold annual spending increasesunder 5 percent.In 1982, his final year in theSenate, Byrd said he was leav-ing public service with his con-victions and integrity intact, butregretting that “Congress refusesto obey its own law which man-dates a balanced budget.”Byrd’s break from theDemocratic Party held enor-mous symbolic and culturalsignificance, an ominous signof the party’s imminent tumblefrom dominance and a polarshift in Southern politics.CLEVELAND (AP) —These Ohio lotteries weredrawn Tuesday:Mega Millions25-27-36-42-44, MegaBall: 39Megaplier3Pick 3 Evening3-0-5Pick 3 Midday0-5-8Pick 4 Evening1-7-0-3Pick 4 Midday8-3-9-7Pick 5 Evening7-1-4-1-0Pick 5 Midday5-3-4-0-5PowerballEstimated jackpot: $235MRolling Cash 513-27-30-31-36Estimated jackpot:$140,000
